Actually Ehoss, Chileno and Devil did not burn in the Station. Everything on the left flank of the Bobcat did burn in the Station and it changed the fuel model. The current run up Chileno/Devil has not burned since 1924.

According to traffic and Forest Net between AA and ANF, 5 Type I helos and 6 Type I fixed wing requested. ANF requested the Quebecs and were denied due to a new start in Malibu/Topanga.
Edit at 1337 hrs, both Q1 and Q2 will be responding to add to the attack.

The fire is pushing uphill towards the Ranch fire perimeter.

Looks like fire is now on Monrovia Peak above the cities of Monrovia, Arcadia and Bradbury. Red Flag Warning in effect brings potential for this to push down into lots of WUI. 4800 acres and 0% contained.

Fire visible in the communities below. AA just got over the fire and saying not looking real good compared to yesterday.
Edit: AA released back to Hemet to preserve flight time.

It’s probably time to just put retardant laterally between the fire and communities

No aircraft on the fire right now.
